Criminology as unitas multiplex:theoretical, epistemological and methodological developments.
In the last three decades, the criminological field has revealed clear signs of increasing crosstalk between elements that had remained separated for a long time.
Bridges have been established between previously separated terrains, which included:
- Different scientific areas, such as the behavioural, social and biological sciences;
- Theoretical and empirical research;
- Quantitative and qualitative research, experimental and clinical methods;
- Scientific knowledge and social action.
Will this multiplicity be an insurmountable obstacle to the unity? Or might it otherwise be the condition for a complex unity, unitas multiplex, which makes Criminology a singular science? How do these theoretical, epistemological, and methodological developments converge towards the enlightenment of contemporary criminological problems?
This framework will constitute the nuclear core of this conference.
We are very pleased to welcome you in Porto!
